BBQ Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno poppers was the first recipe that Phil and I were introduced to when we moved to Texas and it has become a favorite of ours. When I first got the cookbook and I noticed that this was the very first recipe in the PW’s collection, I knew this was going to be a good cookbook. In the past, Phil and I have made our poppers more plain (i.e. just cream cheese for the filling and no BBQ sauce), so we were nervous to break out of our mold. But boy, are we sure glad that we did! I think next time I will go a little lighter on the shredded cheese and a little heavier on the green onions. I cut each bacon strip in half so that each popper only had half a strip of bacon. I used a hickory smoke flavor for the BBQ sauce, and put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Next time I think I will borrow the PW’s tip from the meatloaf recipe and cook the poppers on a broiler pan so as to reduce the grease.
We made half with the BBQ sauce and half without. The BBQ poppers definitely went faster. BBQ Jalapeno Poppers page 14

This is the one recipe that my husband has been asking for! But I thought I would wait until the summer when I have an anormous amount of jalepenos ripe in my garden. I was so happy to find a use for more than one at a time!
